dehumanize. >> stephanie: thank you. it always bothered me. it's the same thing i think as in marriage equality when you know and love somebody they are a human being. there's phrases people use. and the right-wing uses homosexual, because the word sex is in there, so it can bring in the ickiness. >> right. and gay is obviously a little happier. >> stephanie: right. and my favorite story -- [♪ "world news tonight" theme ♪] >> stephanie: it's another don young out of alaska story. another day another not racist gop-er, the republican county commissioner who used the racist term n-word rigging, says he is not racist because he has a

[ laughter ] >> stephanie: all right. so you also by the way bring us the news that the french senate approves key section of marriage bill all but assuring marriage'
6:15am
quality. >> yeah, it's only a matter of time in france which must really annoy people who have been fighting marriage equality. so again, this is the french so i'm not counting my chickens before they hatch. i would like to see them do the job first and then most of europe will have marriage equality with a new outliers. >> stephanie: will this have an effect on the supreme court? >> i think all of these senator that keep, quote unquote, coming up for gay marriage all of those changes have an impact. they show the court that -- that the -- the country is moving quickly in a direction that they
6:16am
don't want to, you know, go against. if you think about it, when loving virginia happened allowing interracial marriage. there was only something like seven states that didn't allow it at that point. so you have so show a strong trajectory. >> stephanie: and on the same track, we have -- interesting stuff going on in the sports world which has been the last bahsian, i think of homophobia. not only did the rutgers coach get fired, but now we're hearing about nfl players coming out and it is going to happen very soon. >> i don't even know what i'm going to do when that happens. i have to just assuming that this one is gay, and that one is gay, and tebow -- i mean that one is day. >> stephanie: because they all seem so gay. >> yeah, really, those pants?

6:35am
>> i can still be the bald profit of boom on al jazeera america. >> stephanie: exactly. >> i'm like the pig pen of boom. >> stephanie: exactly. we missed you. >> i missed you too. i know you were at the beacon theater which is one block from my house. >> stephanie: and you were absent why, now? >> one of them was the big bouncers. i said i know stephanie, i know stephanie. and no they won't interested. >> stephanie: tell us about your new show. >> as you know building al jazeera america from scratch and using some of the infrastructure from current, and i'm going to be leading the business programming side of things. it will be the connection between politics the economy, and life. business used to be a separate
6:36am
department when i started, now it's fully involved in what goes on in washington and what goes on in your state houses. so we're developing that. we're going to figure out how that fits into prime time with al jazeera america. and there are a number of changes with this channel and i'm very very excited to be in on sort of the ground floor. there is already an established ground which is current, and i'm the next level up. >> stephanie: i want to offer you captain america's underpants if i'm not needed anymore. you can have my set. >> well, thank you. >> stephanie: now, so what i -- why -- why did you decide to make the move? this is big, big news in the business? >> yeah, well two reasons. as you know my area of great interest is business, so i have
6:37am
an attraction to the idea of entrepreneurship, and there aren't many chances to start up a chan well the kind of resources that al jazeera is going to put into it. you are building literally everything from the beginning. and the second part of it so al jazeera around the world -- i'm very familiar with al jazeera english, because i broadcasted on cnn international to the rest of the world. and they win a lot of awards and do a lot of great journalism, and i think there's an american audience that will appreciate their commitment to the news. so the -- two parts of that their commitment to the quality of news they want to put on and it's a brand new organization, and i'm not sure in my lifetime i'm going to get to set foot in that big of an organization as
6:38am
it grows. it has been a great 12 years at cnn, and -- but sometimes you just have to shake it up a little. >> stephanie: i think you and i got traded for a draft pick to be named later, because we have traded places. >> that's right. >> stephanie: i was talking to someone from al jazeera and i think it's really true. a lot of people view fox and msnbc as more corporate, and al jazeera is known for really doing journalism, which in america seems like it may lean liberal, but as jim always says facts have a well-known liberal bias, but if you look at the issues in the news, gun control, marriage equality whatever then i guess we're liberals.
6:39am
>> we all kind of believe in fundamental liberal rights and i think that's -- al jazeera is very interested in the topics that will relate to american viewers. they definitely have a view that main stream us in has become corporate. it has got those interests. we tend to be attracted to people who hold important positions or celebrities, and that's okay, but there's a set of story telling that is harder to do -- you know when i get on that cnn bus and drive across the country and talk to people, i almost found that the most fun talking to regular folks. i could always tell you about a recession or recovery from my conversations with ordinary people faster than through economic reports. so real people give you more information. they have more of a finger on the pulse than gathered statistics do. and i felt the al jazeera folks
6:40am
were interested in that kind of news gathering. which i am very very interested in. >> stephanie: and i love that bus tour. in my opinion it really all came together when shirley jones sang along. >> that's right. that really made it. [ laughter ] >> stephanie: it's interesting, though, i think you are right, just -- the people will see when it debuts because i think there has been some unfair perceptions. one of my best friends, her parents are half israeli and half american, and she said they watch al jazeera all the time. >> yeah. look perceptions are perceptions. the only way those perceptions will be overcome is to have a product out there that holds up to scrutiny and media critics will be all over us when it happens, and they should be. they should say are you really putting out fair journalism -- i
6:41am
don't love using the word objective anymore, i objectively think hurricanes are damaging and murdering people is bad, so i don't know about objective. but are we fair? are we going to do that sort of thing? and i think we'll be held to a very high standard and the success of al jazeera in america will be living up to that standard. they seem to have made a commitment in that, and i would like to see how this unfolds in coming weeks. but in the end that's -- the proof is in the pudding. people will watch it or they won't. and there is another issue, and that is where people will see it. getting carrying on major stations will be interesting.
6:42am
>> stephanie: what is your sense of what is happening? obviously not a great jobs number last week. >> sure. people had to make decisions about how they are not hiring because of the sequester. my fear about america right now -- i think things are generally going well. if you have money, good credit and a job, and maybe you were invested in the stock market and bought a house, things are okay with you. but we have bifurcated as a country. we will become a lot more like the countries that we tried really hard to not be like. where there are a vast number of poor people, a smaller number of middle class people and a larger number at the top. we gutted the middle class in this country, and that is a
6:43am
very, very hard thing to rebuild. it's like a neighborhood where houses start to get boarded up and they become crack houses and it's way harder to get rid of that than prevent it from happening. and we all have to realize that we'll all be worse off if we don't grow back that middle class and give the poor an opportunity to prosper. if you are poor and you don't have money, credit or a house, you don't have a good way out of poverty. if you are wealthy or middle class, you can. >> stephanie: ali a lot of talk about the president's new budget yesterday. clearly many not happy about social security being on the table. there is so much speculation about is this just a political play because the republicans aren't going to come to the table on raises taxes a dime. but i have to say, you probably know my dad ran with goldwater
6:44am
in 64, but i just have never seen a republican party in my lifetime like this. >> yeah, they are struggling. i'm going to tell you, there are some great republicans out there who are fighting against the tide to become the main stream again. and i think some of them may succeed, i think we may get to the 2016 presidential race and have a really good contest with some really strong republicans. i think this time around there was a cast of characters who are not representative of the decision making that is necessary. republicans are going to have to get over their new no taxes. i wish the president had sort of played his game a little harder around new year's eve when the debt ceiling thing was going on because we need more taxes. this chain cpi, i don't think it's that terrible because when prices go up on certain things
6:45am
we buy, we as consumers do make choices to substitute for other product. sorry the highest respect for elizabeth warren i'm so happy she is in the senate -- >> stephanie: me too. and nancy pelosi agrees with you on that. >> yeah, we're in a world of tough decisions, stephanie. there just aren't any easy decisions anymore. it is going to hurt. the best thing we can all do -- david [ inaudible ] from the "new york times" wrote a small book about how the budget works. it's just interesting to understand what gets spent and how and then every one of us no matter whether we're liberal or conservative make an informed decision to say what am i prepared to give up, because it is going to be about giving something up. it's not going to be about getting more right now. >> stephanie: yeah, i do agree with you on -- that was the only leverage the president had when the taxes were going to go up
6:46am
anyway. and that's the thing. i just don't understand how you govern, let alone with people who will not negotiate at all. and a lot of people are saying this is why this happened. >> but you are not old enough to remember this, stephanie i know you know this because you understand politics and history, but this is a problem the democratic party had. it is just cyclical. the republican party is just broken right now. and if they are seen in four years as not be successful governing partners they will lose again. we can talk about the demographic trends changing, and i think that's true, but the reality is, the republican party is going through a brokenness where they need to sit there and say we need to put people front
6:47am
and center who understand budgeting, finance, and how to negotiate, and that you can have friends in the other party. and they could take the reins of government next time around. >> stephanie: no hilary will crush them like a bug. [ laughter ] >> stephanie: they will either get stronger in the broken places or be a really strong weak party for a while. >> wouldn't it be interesting to see a hillary clinton versus a chris christie. that would be a race. >> stephanie: absolutely. we could not be more thrilled to have you on the team and when i say team i don't know if i'll be on the team or just like a substitute nfl ref. >> i look forward to continuing to work with you, and perhaps next time if you could just tell the bouncers at the beacon theater i'm on a list --

6:55am
inappropriate, so we didn't watch it. and if we were selfish, we would have watched it and wrecked our kids. and it's the same thing with the gun laws, they are just being selfish for what is really good for society. >> stephanie: yeah. it's interesting. we just mentioned paul krugman and he was talking about the budget, he said unfortunately it will almost surely fail. why? because there are no grown ups. the republicans are going to throw their typical anti-tax tantrum and that will be it. >> caller: exactly. i would like to drive a hundred miles an hour down the road too, but it would be selfish. >> stephanie: exactly. thank you, tim. i appreciate it. or you could alternatively as yesterday's story -- the guy -- >> a tennessee legislator. >> stephanie: yeah, driving 90

i think if you talk to any teacher anywhere, they will tell you in their classrooms there are at least a couple of kids with this issue, whether severe for mild form of it. but that's the crazy thing. the prevalence keeps rising. we don't know why. autism speaks is tirelessly pursuing finance and research trying to come up with some kind of answers, and they have come up with many clues, but there's still no cure. there are many interventions and many dietary things that can be done, and behavioral therapies, but there's no official cure so they have to keep going, you know. they have to keep getting funded so they can -- you know fund these studies -- >> stephanie: right, continue the research. i know you got involved -- i met henry, your son, who i think is

sensitive that that is not the cause of becoming violent. >> oh, i think the autism community was hurt by that because it is certainly one human being did not represent the entire community of autistic individuals. there was probably a lot going on there. you can have autism and you can have something else. you can have a psychiatric disorder. so we don't know enough about that case -- at it certainly was not welcomed by the community to have that be put out in the press the way it was -- >> stephanie: right. >> and such a difficult time for the country anyway, so -- >> stephanie: and you said one in 88 children in the u.s. have an autism spectrum disorder. obviously the vast, vast majority. and several senators made that case that they are more likely to hurt themselves than someone else. and i think people unfairly

focused on that one aspect. >> oh, absolutely. that was a very dark moment particularly when there are so many parents who -- both parents working and yet putting just endless effort into getting their kids to therapies or doing parent-lead therapies and doing everything they can to help their child kind of be folded into community in a typical of a way as possible and then you know, to have that kind of stigma attached. we don't want people to be fearful of the autistic individual or child. it's certainly not helpful when something like that happens, but that's the media world that we live in. >> stephanie: right. kristin you were recorded in the l.a. times piece saying i have been awarded with the time to help him because steven is always out on the road. so we're grateful that papa
